Blood Sugar Balance
– why is it important, and what is the science behind Good Idea?
Every time you eat, your blood sugar goes up. This is totally normal, and a part of the body´s system for transporting energy into its cells. But when you eat food with so-called fast carbs, like white rice, fries, white bread, burgers and pizzas, the blood sugar spikes, just to drop like a stone again shortly after. This is when you feel the typical post-meal slump, usually followed by cravings for sugar.
If this only happens now and then it is probably nothing to worry about. But if recurring blood sugar spikes and lows develop into a pattern, they can be a serious threat to your health. In fact, an un-balanced blood sugar drives inflammation and is one of the foremost risk factors behind lifestyle-related conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, and even dementia.
Good Idea is based on 20 years of research at Lund University in southern Sweden. It tastes and quenches your thirst just as any sparkling water, but this one comes with a twist that makes it the ideal mealtime drink. Its blend of five essential amino acids and chromium are clinically proven to balance the blood sugar after a meal by reducing the blood sugar spike by 20-30%.
The direct benefit of Good Idea is that you will be able to stay sharp and focused even after a rich meal. It will also help you stay away from those sweet treats, and help you consume less sugar. In a longer perspective, a balanced blood sugar is strongly associated with a healthy life.
The mechanisms behind Good Idea include the amino acids ability to “prime” the body to take care of the energy from food in a more efficient way. To reach full effect, about 100 ml of Good Idea should be consumed before the meal, and the rest with the food. The chromium will increase the body´s sensitivity to insulin (the hormone needed to transport energy into the cells) so that less is needed. Chromium is also associated with helping the body utilize all macronutrients: in addition to carbohydrates also fat and protein. This means that Good Idea is ideal also with any carb-reduced diet.
